Favorite Quotes from Andy Samberg
“You are graduating from college. That means that this is the first day of the last day of your life. No, that’s wrong. This is the last day of the first day of school. Nope, that’s worse. This is a day.” – Andy Samberg
“It’s crazy. Since there have been men and women, there have been funny women… f**king idiot-ass men keep saying that women aren’t funny. It makes me crazy. I find it disgusting and offensive every time.” – Andy Samberg
“I’m a tearless clown. If I were to get a tattoo, it would be the two masks, and they would be both smiling.” – Andy Samberg
“I’m a comedian, and I decided I wanted to be a comedian when I was eight years old watching old Saturday Night Live episodes. I never decided to be a rapper because I’m not a rapper.” – Andy Samberg
“My mom let me kind of run free and be rowdy. She encouraged it. I’m the youngest child. So I was spazzy and trying to be funny to my older sisters. It’s kind of my role in the family – tension reliever. I was funny or annoying, depending on your perspective.” – Andy Samberg
3 Lessons from Andy Samberg and from The Lonely Island
Now that you know all about Andy Samberg’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the strongest lessons we can learn from him and his band The Lonely Band:
1. You’re Never Too Old For Anything
Anyone who knows the name Michael Bolton probably knows him for his world famous love songs back in the day.
This is the man responsible for “When a Man Loves a Woman” and dozens upon dozens of other soulful love songs. And, now in his early 60’s, this same man is the featured singer of the hit Lonely Island song, “Jack Sparrow.”
If that isn’t proof that you can do and be anything you want to be no matter what age you are, then I just don’t know what is.
2. Being Cool is All About Confidence
If you’ve seen the members of The Lonely Island, then you already know that their oddly attractive persona has very little to do with the way they dress. The hyper-masculine attitude of The Dudes is all about confidence and self-respect, no matter what their clothes or behavior would otherwise indicate.
3. Throwing Things On the Ground is Funny in Almost Every Situation
If you’ve read any of my other Lifehack posts, then you may have noticed that I’m a big fan of exercising your inner child and not taking your life too seriously.
That’s just one of the many reasons that I’m such a huge Lonely Island fan. As their video and song for “Threw It On The Ground” shows, you can throw just about ANYTHING on the ground and it will be funny to someone.
